This paper was submitted to the symposium on AIDS and its social problems which was held by the Islamic Organization for Medical Sciences (IOMS) in Kuwait during the period 6-8 December 1993. The main thesis of this paper is that AIDS, from an Islamic juristic perspective, should be equated with the concept of death- sickness (marad al-mawt) as outlined in different classical manuals of Islamicjurisprudence. Classical Muslim religious scholars stated that once a person becomes infected with a serious sickness which usually leads irrevocably to death, then his/her financial dispositions which harm the financial interests of the creditors or prospective heirs should be subject to juristic restrictions. The author argues that the same rulings should apply to those who contract AIDS.
